Corker “Kickback”, December 17, 2017

It is NOT NORMAL to insert a provision into a tax bill at the last minute that will substantially personally benefit a single senator, who coincidentally happens to be the last vote needed to pass the bill. The senator in question insists that he did not know about the provision when he agreed to vote for the bill, because he agreed to vote for the bill without reading it first, which also strikes me as problematic.
